Oxford Official Walking Tours

An Oxford Official Walking Tour is the best way to explore Oxford’s history, the University of Oxford, famous people and old traditions. There is a tour for all interests including our popular City and University Tour; tours for fans of Harry Potter, Inspector Morse and Alice in Wonderland through to specialist themed tours, including one exploring Oxford’s modern architecture.

Our tours are for all walking abilities and cover between 1 and 2 miles, and last between 1 and 2 hours, depending on the tour.

Your tour will be conducted by a professionally trained guide who holds a Blue or Green Badge awarded by the Institute of Tourist Guiding, the national professional body. Your guide will also be a member of the Oxford Guild of Tour Guides. In addition, it is a member of the UK Guild of Registered Tourist Guides, the national professional organisation which guarantees a high standard of guiding thoughout the UK.

Book these tours online or from inside the Oxford Visitor Information Centre down Broad Street in Oxford.
